Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 5 of Quilter’s Newsletter’s blog tour. I so love that you are here. I’m privileged to have my little laminated quilt hanger featured in Quilter’s Newsletter Best Kids Quilts issue, 2015.
Working with Quilter’s Newsletter is a joy; special thanks to Lori Baker, Mary Kate Karr-Petras and Caitlin Dickey. Lovely ladies.
Like many of you, hands down, my favourite quilt to design is for a child. Sweet dreams is a simple, child-themed project that conveniently hangs on your kid’s headboard, footboard or on the side of a daybed.
The six pockets can hold books, small toys and treasures; secret storage for your wee one. The quilt front is made of Riley Blake laminated cottons…the fabric line is called Floriography. Machine embroidery embellishes the little bed hanger but you don’t necessarily have to follow my lead – you can skip the embroidery altogether or choose only to applique designs on the top pockets.
Stitching with laminate is not at all difficult. I’ve compiled a list of hints that accompany my project on pages 19, 20 and 21 of the issue. It’s chock full of 22 patterns and you can purchase a copy here.
Leave me a comment on my blog. I will choose two winners randomly and Quilter’s Newsletter will award two very lucky quilters each a fabric bundle aptly entitled Sweet Things by Northcott.
In addition, if you leave me a comment AND sign up to subscribe to my email blog, I will choose one new subscriber to receive this fabulous pile of quilt magazines, which includes Best Kids Quilts. Double the fun!
Comments will be accepted until Monday, May 11, 2015 at midnight MST. Good luck to everyone and thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by.
